    Waste to Wonder: student work

    Assistant Professor Nikole Bouchard has given her students the challenge to reconsider waste in our lives.

    Waste is generally a concealed and ill-understood amalgamation of items, most often hidden from view, whille on the other hand, reflecting our society. How do we engage with an infrastructure that is more-or-less shrouded and inaccessible, yet completely interlaced in our daily routines?  Given our lack of contact with waste infrastructure, how can research and design mediate our interface with waste and inspire innovative ways for us to turn our trash into treasure?
    Students were encouraged to research the life cycle of items, produce precedent analyses, maps, diagrams, infographics and assembly drawings to discover imaginative ways to work with Waste.,

    No Item was off-limits, as a result, there have been some interesting goings-on in studio....

    Thanks to the students in this studio for sharing their work:

    Rachel Momenee, Bradley Pokrzewinski, Kyle Resheske, Brandon Sather, Ryan Shumway, Hugh Soward III, Mitchell Branscombe, Erik Schiller
